Game coding

Hi to all.

I have taken my computer from the storage room and decided to
remember my coding times again. I did things in Amos but now
I am getting acquainted with Blitz. reading the manual I have
seen that in the sentence "DisplayAdjust (from Display Lib)"
says that it is almost impossible to have a dp display of 4
bitplanes each and 8 sprites moving across the screen. The code
I send shows that it can be done perfectly. This code is as
simple as possible but I think it is a good base for the
creation of games. I wait for your opinions about it.

Thank you for read me.

Welcome along... It's not impossible at all, but what the manual is getting at is that the display needs to be narrower than normal. Sprite fetching has a lower priority than other DMA channels, so if you don't use a narrower display, sprite channel 7 goes missing as there simply isn't time for it. Which is why games like Super Skidmarks have the width of the display reduced.

Hi Daedalus, thank you very much for your explanation. Yes, I understand that to having
all sprites in a overscan display is not possible. Anyway playing with the "DisplayAdjust"
command is possible to get a reasonable display width.

Have good time!
